Summary: Do NOT buy a Swiss Army Brands watch via Amazon or a third party seller. You will get screwed because Swiss Army will not honor the 3-year warranty. I didn't know this when I ordered from here, and had to waste my time with a return. Love the watch, hate getting screwed out of a warranty.
Summary: My wife bought this watch for me as a gift. It's really a great watch. It accidentally got washed and stopped working. I took it to REI, where my wife bought it, and they replaced it with no problem. See, that's what's nice about REI......100% customer satisfaction. So, if you don't like it or it wears out too quick, just return it for a refund or credit. Anyway, the watch is nice. I'm a studio potter. I wear the watch most of the day and love it.
Summary: I recently received this watch as a replacement to one I had about ten years ago. I love it. It isn't the strongest watch. the plastic scratches and the band breaks fairly easy but for the price and the elegant look I like how it feels and the watch keeps perfect time. It is also light as a feather.
Summary: Beware of warrenty issues. I love this watch and would purchase the same model again, but I would not advise purchasing a Victorinox from Amazon. Victorinox does not honor their warrenties when an item is purchased through Amazon. So, my lovely watch that gets so fogged-up that it is difficult to read the time whenever it gets wet, is a big disappointment.
Summary: This watch may seem somewhat expensive since it is a black plastic basic time/date watch, but for what it is, it's perfect. The plastic used to make the case is very high quality, the rubber used for the strap is very durable, but at the same time is comfortable/flexible/soft. The many holes in the strap help keep your wrist from getting too sweaty, the numbers are big and easy to read, the accuracy of the watch is very impressive (loses maybe a minute or two per year),...
Summary: I have had this watch for about 10 years now and was just checking around to see if it is still made, and to my surprise it still is, which is good. I have worn this watch to work almost everyday on from when I got to about 2006. I stopped wearing it because my cell phone has a clock and was using that. My wife took over the watch and started wearing it to work. Her job involved putting her hands in water and chicken fat daily throughout the day.
Summary: The Swiss Army Renegade watch is the most rugged watch I've ever owned. Its numbers are large and easiy read at a glance. The design is simple and doesn't have unnecessary ornamental detailing. The watch case is made from a lightweigh yet durable plastic (it may sound cheap but it's quality material). And the flexible band is very comfortable yet strong.
Summary: I am on my third one in 17 years. If one stops working I immediately buy another! I absolutely LOVE this watch. Both my previous watches died because moisture got into them - one my fault and one the battery replacer! The face design is the most eligant I have ever seen, yet basic and functional. You would have to pay thousands of dollars for a watch as eligant(see Bell & Ross!). I wear it 24/7, only removing it if I am crawling under a car or working on a lawn mower.
Summary: I've had my Victorinox Swiss Army Renegade watch since 1999 or 2000. Mine originally had a nylon strap, but it is essentially the same watch. it's been great over the years and I still include it in my watch rotation. Other than a single band replacement, and some new batteries, it has been a flawless, trusty companion. The design is timeless, and it's not a hefty as some newer watches, but that's part of its charm.
